PALHS AquaFiesta 2010

“It is our aim that maybe in the near future, we can make Aquafiesta an international event here in the Philippines and thus help lift up the ornamental fish industry,” PALHS President Vigilart “Archie” David said in an interview about the AquaFiesta 2010.This aim buoyed even more as the event exhibited its underwater grandeur at Tiendesitas, Pasig City last April 26 to May 2.

The event was a successful plunge for the Philippine Arowana and Luo Han Society (PALHS), the event’s organizing team, in line with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources’ (BFAR) Ornamental Fish Week fete. PALHS is a non-stock, non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance and reliable information through sharing knowledge, experiences and ideas for those that enjoy the challenge and satisfaction of keeping Arowana, Lou Han (Flowerhorn) and other types of freshwater and marine fishes. It is also the objective of PALHS to encourage, aid, and spread the enjoyment of the aquarium hobby in the Philippines.

AquaFiesta 2010 displayed Arowana Shows and the first ever Koi and Goldfish Shows. Competitions of fish breeds between aquarium hobbyists were also held at the event that made the Team Cebu homed six out of seven trophies from different Koi and other fish breeds categories.

AquaFiesta 2010 is sponsored by Tiendesitas, Las Farolas – the Water World, TOMiGAi, Manila Bulletin, Agriculture Magazine, and Viking. The event which is also supported by BFAR also has a special acknowledgment to Mr. Henry G. Babiera,
